Peterson House / Ticen or Tyson House

Dating from the 1880s, the wood frame farm house is typical of the vernacular Victorian era architecture of the region.  The shiplap sided walls of the primarily 1½-story residence are painted.  A one-story historic addition completes the L-shaped plan, and the gabled roofs are covered with wood shingles.  The property was leased to the Peterson family in 1899.
